The latest advancements in design, material and engineering take this award
winning water birth pool to new levels of usability and end user satisfaction
Judges at the Building Better Health Awards said,
“That the Active Birth Pool is an incomparable combination of intelligent design,
superior materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing.
The judges found the Active Birth Pool very appealing and praised that all aspects of design, engineering and manufacture had been focused on to develop a water birth pool of unparalleled beauty, quality, functionality and durability.
They said that foremost consideration had been given to how mothers and midwives relate to and interact with the pool and how ergonomic principles had been employed to design for the interaction and dynamic at play.
Mothers have the space to move freely and comfortably and are supported in the postures natural to labour and birth. They move instinctively to find the positions that are most comfortable and beneficial.
The distinctive extra-wide rims that curve over and flow down the outside side of the pool are shaped and contoured to maximise comfort and support for mothers and midwives.
The wide flat rim allows mothers to lean forward, resting on their forearms in comfort – one of the most natural and effective positions during labour.
It provides secure, safe, stable support for women to enter and leave the pool and for midwives and partners to lean or rest on while attending the mother.
